Lifetime Achievement award will be presented posthumously to local artist Sandi D’Alessandro. Sandi, a local art teacher for 36 years, impacted the community with her work as an artist and through her dedication to her students.

Richard Dillard
The Perry F. Kendig Award, named for the late Roanoke Valley arts patron and a former president of Roanoke College, was established in 1985 to recognize examples of support, involvement, accomplishment in the arts, and to inform the community about significant contributions to the arts in our region.

A reception and award ceremony will be held at the Taubman Museum of Art on May 02, 2011. For information on tickets please call 540.342.5790.

(Note: The Kindigs are pretty close to me. I've won two--the first Literary Award shared with my FRONT partner, Tom Field, and another when I was with the Blue Ridge Business Journal.)
